Education at Liverpool Cathedral

Each visit is an active learning experience designed to encourage pupils to ask questions. We hope to provide experiences and memories that will last beyond the length of their visit. We are always happy to adapt and develop our workshops to meet your pupils’ particular needs. We want to make teachers happy too! So we will do everything we can to make sure that your visit runs smoothly.

Introduction to the Team

Our talented schools team is made up of experienced qualified teachers, education guides, arts practitioners and others, all of whom have a passion for the Cathedral, learning outside the classroom and the creative arts.

Our Facilities

The Education Centre has two self contained classrooms at the rear of the Cathedral (East End) for use by visiting schools. Toilet and coat facilities for your school group. Packed lunches can be eaten in the Education Centre. The hire of the Education Centre for lunch is free for those schools having a tour or workshop. For those schools just wanting to use the centre for lunch only there is a charge of £10 per room. The rooms are also available for hire for Teacher INSET, conferences and seminars.

Please contact the Education Department at for more information.

As a Cathedral we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All staff and volunteers share this commitment

"I just wanted to say how much our students from both St Julie’s and our partner school in Madrid enjoyed the visit to the Cathedral on Saturday. Your colleagues made us most welcome and all of us had a thoroughly good time both walking around the Cathedral and on the viewing platform at the top of the tower".
Scott Davenport - Assistant Headteacher (St Julie’s Catholic High School, Liverpool)

"It was a fantastic day  The children really enjoyed it and the staff brought the best out of them"
Mr Lyndsay - Year 5-6 teacher (Our Lady's of Walsingham) -

"Very well planned and the half hour workshops were well timed to keep the children's attention and focus"
TA (Our Lady's of Walsingham)

The pupils at the Remembrance Day Workshops were asked to write down one thing they are going to tell people about their visit to the Cathedral

"I am going to say that they should visit the Cathedral because it is a great place"
RC Callaghan - Year 6 pupil (Our Lady's of Walsingham)
